Introduction: Teaching you how to heal your mind and body through movement and awareness. - Addiction, depression/ anxiety & stress - Athletes & physical health When Melissa first started practicing yoga, she never imagined finding herself lost in the lifestyle. It became her release, a way to completely let go of her over-stimulated mind. After working in a correctional facility, psychiatric hospital, and rehabilitation centers, she realized most of the counseling suggested was geared towards lessons learned through the practice of yoga. Inspired by her clients, she completed her yoga teacher certificate in Ko Pha-ngan, Thailand with the desire to incorporate holistic healing through her teachings. Melissa’s intention is to support each student to leave their session lighter than when they first arrived. Yoga connects the mind and body, allowing changes to occur on a physical and mental level. Relieve your stress, calm the nervous system, sharpen your attention while increasing your body awareness. Flow through postures that improve symptoms of depression and sleep disorders. Practice and learn different breathing techniques to reduce anxiety. Through consistent practice the strength, flexibility and focus gained on the yoga mat will follow you through your every day life. If there is a change in your schedule, please notify us 24 hours in advance to reschedule at no charge. Sessions are not refundable once booked.

I thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from my session with Melissa. Before the session I expressed my concerns and disappointments with Yoga. However what was amazing is that it was extremely relaxing and exciting. What I liked most was the constant focus and encouragement. I did stretches I never knew I had in me. After the session I felt lighter while walking and much lighter when hiking. Not only did I feel fit but also felt a lot younger.

Working with Melissa is a real pleasure. The motivation to do better and push myself in each session is a sign of her ability to make the workout fun, as I see the improvement every week. I highly recommend Melissa for yoga and/or workout sessions.

I’ve tried a few different yoga instructors and I found Melissa to be an exceptional teacher. Even virtually she was able to customize the session to my needs, give very specific adjustments I was able to follow and provide an overall holistic experience. She’s very passionate about her craft and seems to genuinely care, she even gave my kids a free intro to yoga class (which they loved) I cannot recommend highly enough :)

    I have a degree in psychology. I worked in a correctional facility, rehabilitation centers and hospital with the psychiatric unit.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I worked in the psychiatric field for a few years before I realized most of my counseling was geared towards lessons I learned through the practice yoga. Today I am a full time yoga teacher with the intention of including holistic healing through each session.
